Elegy to a Lost Love

I wanted to love without reservation.
You came and spoke of boundries
As if they held every vital morsel
        of living, breathing necessity.
        (Some things grow
        like an inbound tree
    stretching their arms
    through the soul.)
Your belief in impossibility plunged into me,
And I pleaded for you to dive in after
        now that my heart’s a sea
        of joyous energy,
the waves that could carry me into eternity.
        However, forever was
        the only boundry
    that could not
    contain you.
I will live on as your absence
deepens toward the horizon,
time the healer watching over.
(A heart must contract
before it can expand.)
